Blues and Blues coming to Lacombe Memorial Centre

Event supports the Lacombe Performing Arts Centre Foundation

The Lacombe Performing Arts Centre Foundation (LPACF) is bringing Blues and Brews,a first of it its kind event, to the Lacombe Memorial Centre on May 4th.

“Craft beer, blues bands..what more do you need?,” asked organizer Grant Harder. “We have two bands: Overdue Blues Band from Red Deer and Bluesland Horn Band from Calgary.

“We also have four Breweries: Snake Lake, Blindman, Troubled Monk and Siding 14 from Ponoka.”

The event is for craft beer lovers, music lovers and also is for those not inclined to the burgeoning hops fluid.

“Besides beer, there will be spirits and wine as well. If you are not a beer drinking, there will be alternatives,” Harder said. “The doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the music starts at 8 p.m. Come on down and blues it up.”

Proceeds for the event go straight to LPACF and the idea was to create a unique experience that has the potential to be an annual tradition.

“We wanted to do something different and have an event that Lacombe hasn’t seen before. It is a good one and I hope we get people out to support it. Cheeks in the seats is what it is all about,” he said.

Getting some of the best breweries from Lacombe, Red Deer, Sylvan Lake and Ponoka was an easy ask for the Foundation

“The breweries were right into it. It is an awesome event with great bands, great local breweries and I think everyone is right into it,” Harder

Admission to the event is $25 per ticket and Harder said it will definitely be something not seen everyday in the community

“You don’t get two blues bands on the stage in Lacombe. I think it is a unique opportunity for people to get out an enjoy it,” he said.

He added, “If you are music fan, this is a must-see music event in Lacombe.”
